at some airports because of budget cuts, while on capitol hill blame is taking flight. the faa reports more than 1200 flights were delayed around the nation. sequestration requires the faa to cut $637 million from its budget. yesterday, hundreds of airport workers were forced to stay home because of the cuts. congressional republicans took to twitter to blame the president. house speaker john boehner tweeted under the hashtag obamaflightdelays. congressman eric cantor tweeted "why is president obama unnecessarily delaying your flight?" white house spokesman jay carney told reporters "the faa has no choice under the automatic budget cuts brought about by the congressional republican budget priorities. the gop can eliminate sequestration by approving a debt reduction plan that includes taxes from the wealthy through the closing of loopholes." "these cutbacks, with all the harm that's being caused to the traveling public, there's just no reason that i can see that justifies what's being done here." flight delay information is available at a bill will be introduced in the senate t
the furloughs kicked in for 47,000 faa workers including 15,000 air traffic controllers. it meant every day 10% of the faa's workforce had to take an unpaid day off. 5,800 flights delayed just the first three days of furloughs compared to 2,500 delays over the same period last year. democrats had argued for a complete fix to the forced budget cuts and less than a week into the furloughs the elected leaders have intervened to give the department of transportation flexibility in determining how cuts are made. >> the problem is that this is just a band-aid solution. the funding associated with the furloughs at the faa is i think $253 million. that's one half of 1%. one half of 1% of the sequester. >> hopefully any delays you experience now can just be blamed on the usual misery of flying. nancy cook is an economic and fiscal policy correspondent for the national journal and josh marks, the executive director of the aviation institute. nancy, i want to start with you. one month into the forced budget cuts polls show around half of americans still don't know whether the cuts were good or bad for th

"i was delayed from laguardia. we were on the ground for about an hour. they made it up in the air, but we were delayed today." but delays in chicago were spotty, though passengers were bracing for them.

for faa. the transportation department has probably the worst lead on sequestration, because so many of their employees are not affected because they are funded in part by trust funds. in other words, the highway trust fund is not subject to sequester. it squeezes the air traffic controllers. no know that rockefeller along with senator thune was meeting yesterday with a faa to come up with a solution. i would certainly be open to it. >> have had hearings in the senate armed armed services committee and we have heard from everybody except the navy. the kinds of hearings we have, every one of our uniformed service chiefs have said it cannot defend the nation if we continue with this sequester. i'm terribly uncomfortable with the delays of faa. i think it is a terrible thing. i have been subject to it myself. we are looking at a virtual threat to our national security. we have got our priorities upside down. i am hell-bent -- if we're going to take care of airlines in the past years, why don't we take care of our national security? the world is a more dangerous place than i have seen ev

editorial today. "on monday after the sequester cuts forced the f.a.a. if a to begin furloughs for air traffic control he is, delays began to build up at airports around the country. travelers had to wait but nothing delayed republicans from scurrying away from all responsibility. speaker john boehner started using twitter hash tag "obama flight delays. the latest effort in his party's campaign to blame all the pain of sequester on the obama administration." why is president obama unnecessarily delaying your flight? that's a quote from eric cantor, wrote in edge in on twitter. if the president wanted to, republicans said, he could easily cut somewhere else and spare travelers any inconvenience. as it happens, sequester law is clear in requiring the f.a.a. and most other agencies to cut their programs by an even amount. that law was foisted on the public after republicans demanding spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling in 2011. since then the party has rejected every offer to relays the sequester with a more sensible mix of cuts and revenue increases. mr. boehner is so

the federal aviation administration saying that these should be put off. they say the law allows the faa and the administration to cut somewhere else in the 16 billion-dollar annual budget of the faa. they say the way the faa were cuts makes the delays even worse. >> under the applicable laws. the faa has the authority or the discretion to find the money elsewhere. not to lay off the workers. and, therefore, to protect the traveling and shipping public, the faa should not furlough the air traffic controllers. now congressional republicans charge the way the administration has structured this is simply for political reasons. the administration says that's absolutely not the case. they say the way is law isten o other choices than to furlough these air traffic controller if they have to reach the savings that the law requires, shep. >> >> shepard: we are expecting it to say four different flight delays faa is saying. airlines anywhere between 6700. about a quarter of the flight traffic in this country daily. in a statement the faa says they will be working with the airlines and using traff
